Episode two of Game of Thrones' final season gave us what many fans have long been waiting for: Arya and Gendry finally doing the do!
The pair have been eyeing each other since being reunited at Winterfell last week and their eventual hookup seemed to be an inevitable occurrence.

Of course, many fans are just glad Arya got to exercise her sexuality before what may be the last day of her life.

For a girl who's never spent a lot of time on romance, she seemed to read Gendry pretty well.

There were some people on the internet who felt uncomfortable watching Arya, who they've known since she was a child, getting the nasty on.

By this point in the story, Arya is around 18 years old, and Maisie Williams is 22.
Turns out Arya Stark is two years older than me in real life. Still felt super weird about it.— Robbie Fox (@Robbie Fox) 1555898849.0

Well done, Arya! Taking charge of your sexuality and seeking out consensual relationships is a great start in the Westeros dating world. If only your chances of survival were higher...
